Poem by Maryum "May May" Ali read at the April 29, 2006 Parkinson's Unity Walk

May May Ali

Parkinson's may take your smile once in a while,

but it can't take your style.

It may have taken your walk or the way you talk,

but it doesn't have to capture your heart.

Parkinson's may change the way you sleep;
staying up all night long,

but it can't take your spirit – a spirit that's strong.
